Last month when Ramblin’ Kathy came to town and visited me and Magpie (gee, was it really last month already?) all three of us took a photo of the same reflection. Actually, this happened a lot, but we decided we would all post this on the same day without having seen what the others were posting to see what we got. I was playing with my Olympus PL-1 because I hadn’t played with it in a while and I always like using the Dramatic Filter on buildings.
During my last trip to Venice Beach, the most beautiful blue building caught my eye. As I kept walking and staring at it I thought “What a neat idea to paint a window on it with the reflection of the sky to match the blue walls.” Then I realized that it WAS a window reflecting the blue sky above the sea.
Believe it or not, the gate I posted Wednesday does not belong to this home. I think they kind of complement each other though.
I call this house along the canals in Venice, CA, “The Flamingo House”. Among its many Flamingo-themed decorations is this fence along the walkway.
I took this photo from our hotel room during our trip to San Francisco last year. It was one of the rare clear days during our trips, and I thought the colorful buildings looked so pretty framed between the skyscrapers. This has become one of my very favorite photos.
I have been having tons of fun trying to learn how to use PSE and Topaz Adjust, and boy do I have a lot to learn!

Yes, I did half expect to see Gomer Pyle come running out to pump gas.
